Listening to Kennedy ATC on Real Audio, I hear international flights being issued the Canarsie Climb and Gateway Climb. What exactly are these?

What you're hearing are specific procedures for climbing out of the immediate N90 terminal area.Here's the charts for the KENNEDY9 DP, which is where the Canarsie Climb comes from.(note - remove the last "f" from each link and paste it into the browser, I couldn't get it to come up otherwise...

and the description:

As you can see from the description, the Canarsie Climb is: Turn left, proceed direct CRI (Canarsie VOR). The turn must be made within 4.5 DME JFK and east of the CRI R-039, then you intercept the CRI R-176 outbound and await radar vectors from departure control. There's a restiction too - cross CRI 2 DME or the JFK R-253 at or above 2,500 then climb and maintain 5000.They need all these procedures within procedures there because of the huge volume of traffic N90 gets, having JFK, LGA, and EWR all in the same terminal area.

Oh, OK...So its in addition to the Kennedy 9 Departure, not really one in its own.

I'd like to add that the bridge and canarsie climb are only for TO's from 31L (and 31R also,but that's not often used for TO in real life)
